Pat Perry (b. Michigan, 1991) is an American visual artist exploring the romantic and quotidian scenes of life and human connection outside American and global centers. Perry's multi-disciplinary practice spans painting, drawing, photography, and large-scale outdoor mural installations, bringing Perry to far corners of the world. Beginning in the 2010s, the artist's ongoing series of sketchbooks and photos documenting his travels within the United States from freight trains became some of his best-known works, showing scenes of "America from backstage." Perry's murals and posters have called attention to various social causes through collaborations with groups such as the Beehive Design Collective, AptArts, No More Deaths, and the UN High Commissioner For Refugees. His studio work explores themes of social and emotional effects of 21st-century technologies, as well as knowledge limits of individual meaning-making. He has held solo exhibitions at Hashimoto Contemporary in New York and Los Angeles, Takashi Murakami's Hidari Zingaro Gallery in Tokyo, Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome, and a museum show at UICA in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Perry's most recent body of work surveys scenes of American suburban or midwestern life from which beauty might arise. He works and lives downtown on Detroit's East Side, where he is attempting to regrow a forest on the twelve vacant lots that surround his house.
